Roosevelt And De Gaulle: Allies In Conflict
Roosevelt And De Gaulle: Allies In Conflict
By Raoul Aglion
Free Press, 1988, 237 pp

Personal memoirs of a French diplomat who in 1940 instantly rallied to De Gaulle. He was posted in New York and describes the bitter divisions among the French in the U.S., the imperiousness of De Gaulle, and the largely anti-Gaullist mood in the U.S. government, while the American press was largely pro-Gaullist. A fascinating insider's view, but not an historical account and containing a few inaccuracies.
